The home notebook's hard drive has stuck its middle platten to the world and has declared no mas.
I had it reformatted and a chkdsk revealed bad clusters. I shut it down and it will come up no more.only a blinking cursor. Bios test of the hard drive fails every time. .
It is one dead hard drive.
However, it failed with 2 more months left on the warranty and Costco is going to have me ship it out for service. Hooray for extended warranties.
Blogging this weekend will be light as the Blackberry is no replacement for a full notebook with picture upload capability.
